A degree of disappointment.
« on: November 04, 2009, 11:19:18 pm »
Hello Antoine and Arturia's team.
Today, I can say that the property of Arturia CS80 has a long way to go to say that it sounds like the real CS80. In the second version does not have the energy used honestly. You have conformed to what the sound that already existed in the previous version. Interpreter not get me wrong. Your emulation sounds wonderful and is a very special synthesizer, if not indispensable in a softstudio. But you must work harder to make it sound like the real truth CS80. For now, this second version has not moved anything in this field. I think R & D should have priority in this respect, above all the wonderful additions that you have done. Not an exclusive view. All who know the original CS80 think the same ... without exception. I believe that you, despite the praise, so you know.
Have you been able to do with difficult synthesizers, as the Minimoog. Your Minimoog is incredible. Can ye do the same with the CS80?
This is intended as a constructive criticism from the affection I have for all your synthesizers.
Thanks!

PS: I hope that with the Arp 2600 do not do the same. It is even further to resemble the original.

We think we better match the venerable CS-80 with our CS-80V2, particularly with the improved filter and ring mod.
Now, it must be clear that a software (especially depending on the computer audio converters) will never *exactly* sound like a monster full of 30 years old electronic components, but at best capture its character as closely as possible.
Also, the Minimoog has a far more simple architecture than the CS-80, and it was comparatively "easier" to reproduce. Note also that original Model-D were very disparate in sound, and that's probably the reason why many people think our recreation is the closest to the original, and some other think we missed it and prefer another one from another talented French company, for instance.

Anyway, we will keep improving all our models everywhere we find (or users point) weaknesses. If you have special request on a particular point, let us know.

Thanks for the constructive critics, by the way, they always are welcome.  :)

Thank you for responding so sincerely, Antoine.
I expected no less from you.
Try to contribute my little grain because there is no doubt that you are special.
